Bad

AnonymousCountry code: ponychan.png, country type: customflag, valid: 36830687

I've been waiting weeks to write these words.

What an unnecessary lesson episode. Correct me if I didn't get this right back in season 1 but isn't Rainbow Dash supposed to be the element of loyalty?

This story was so out of line and order that I have to wonder why it was released at all.

Rainbow Cunt one last time.

2/10

I think it was more about being cool with cheerleading if you’re a target demo age boy or girl.

My least favorite episode of the season. What was the lesson? I don't know why this episode acts like it's bad to have interests. If Rainbow Dash doesn't like cheerleading, she shouldn't coach it. Nothing wrong with that. Also, I don't like Snips and Snails and I wish they wouldn't be in episodes anymore. I can think of plenty of other minor characters I'd rather see.

Aren't we well beyond lessons?

Anyway, the episode was interesting in the way that it was relatable. Dash got a job pushed on she wanted nothing to do with. And she did what many do in that case, doing a half-assed job at best, boycotting it at worst.

If you want a lesson I guess it was that you should make an effort for your friends' sake, if not for your own. And maybe you'll find enjoyment in it if you give it a chance.

Still, didn't like the episode much, it wasn't exciting or fun or anything. Like all buckball episodes.

It was good to see Snips and Snails though, they've been sidelined for way too long. Even though I don't really like them.

You got me wrong. I don't necessarily want a lesson. However, it seems like the episode was trying to shoehorn a bad lesson into it. I did laugh a bunch during the episode because Dash is super relatable in it, and I don't fault her for her attitude. I really disagree with the Anon who called her "Rainbow Cunt." If anything, she behaved pretty much as I would have in that situation.

>>36830694
I disagree with the Rainbow Cunt statement as well, mostly because "loyalty" had IMO nothing to do with the issue at hand. And I fully understand acting in a similar fashion as Dash did.

Yea. I think what would have made this a great episode is if Twilight realized that she shouldn't have wronged Rainbow Dash the way she did by forcing her to coach the cheerleaders without even warning her. But I'm guessing that would leave a sour taste in many people's mouths.

I don't think she forced it that much really. But it's not easy saying no to a friend either.

True, but at the very least Dash felt cornered.

Let's see.

First off, RD is a teacher at Twilight's school. What if RD's attitude about things that don't interest her but are relevant to her students begins to spread?

Secondly, what role model did RD set for the members of the cheer leading team? Why should I care? is what came across time after time in her behavior.

Rainbow Cunt fits. She was supposed to be past this stage of her character development. This might have been a valid idea to explore back between seasons 2 to 5.

One last thing. Watch Twilight's conversation with RD in the last minute of the episode. This marks a new but subtle expression of Twilight as future monarch of Equestria. She knew what she set in motion and rubbed RD's nose in it in the final act of the episode.

Ignoring everything else, this itself is kind of a bogus argument. Nobody's flaws just magically disappear forever. That's not character development. I think it's perfectly normal and reasonable for all the characters to still grapple with their weaknesses until the end.

Started off as everypony being a shithead for no apparent reason, somehow got redeemed by the all is well end, but they could have gone a bit more, I dunno, versatile about it, than everything being weird until Dashie finally succumbs to a responsibility and guilt trip.

Feeling bad how I smirked at that sneak diss on Zecora.
Red cheerleader is absolutely unf.

Loyaty is compatible with egomania, which is RD's incurable flaw.

I wish that had been Zecora's rhyming dictionary.

I'm in agreement here as well. Dash may not have put in all the effort, but literally what can you do when your interest is so low you can't tell good from bad? She went out of her way asking for help all over the place, tried handing off the job to someone who cared, but if that isn't enough there isn't much more one can do. It gives me those nasty Honest Apple vibes all over again.

It did make sense that in the end, Dash simply had to help the squad with what they wanted, rather than wrack her brain over making the cheer squad effective. If the squad is having a good time cheering, who gives a shit if they're any good at it? But just as it used to be with Celestia, Twilight deliberately forcing Dash into a tense and uncomfortable position she has no desire to be in just to teach her a lesson is the utmost in princess cuntiness. She's a professor at your school, where the hell do you get off teaching her a lesson like that?? Twilight can fuck right off.
